Welcome to HCM,
You are having Hypothyroidism and taking supplementation Levothyroxine 100 microgram daily.
Please do not stop taking this drug by yourself as you have already stopped and TSH level is more that is 9.
You should consult Physician /Endocrinologist and restart the drug and he/she will also find out is there any need for any other medicine.
Active drug in both tablet is Levothyroxine , but preferably same brand of the drug should be used, start as suggested by your Physician, you will be required to monitored clinically as well as by measurement of TSH to find out dose requirement for you,but regular follow up is required.
If required anti TPO AB test and sonography of Thyroid and FNAC may be done.
Please take care
Good Luck
